'Sin City' Sequel Switches the Title to 'Sin City: A Dame to Die For'?
Over the summer, Dimension Films pushed back Frank Miller & Robert Rodriguez's long expected sequel Sin City: A Dame to Kill For back to the new release date of August 22nd, 2014, which likely means we could get a glimpse of the film at Comic-Con 2014. However, between that news and the release of the film, there appears to have been a small change in the marketing of the film, specifically the title. A piece of promo art at the American Film Market was spotted that looks just like the poster we've already seen for the film, except the title now says Sin City: A Dame to Die For. It's a small change, but less aggressive.
Here's the new piece of promo art found at AFM thanks to Bloody Disgusting:
We're betting that some focus group testing made the title sound a little too abrasive and forward, whereas A Dame to Die For implies some sort of honor and protection. That's just speculation on our part, but it would make sense. So far we've only seen a first look photo of Josh Brolin on set and then touched up with the special effects that will be seen in the film. Otherwise, we're still waiting for some more photos for the film or some sort of teaser trailer. The cast is impressive with Bruce Willis and Mickey Rourke returning along with new cast members like Eva Green, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jeremy Piven and more. Stay tuned.
